So Ugly --It's Cute

Don't laugh -- I have never made a 3-D project before. I am going to a baby shower next week and I thought this would be fun for the lil guy. So here is "Chomper"

The pattern is called Prehistoric Pals and I ordered through Jimmy Beans Wool. The yarn is Noro Kuryeon, one of my favs.

Now I am off to make the "long neck" guy to go with!

Finally Some Socks

I started this sock on September 1st and had intended on finishing in within the month, but a huge fundraiser for my kids school got in the way. I spent so much time on the computer that I gave myself some repetitive motion symptoms that left me unable to knit or work on the computer much. Lesson learned.

These are Blueberry Waffle Socks (thanks Joansie!) knit toe-up using White Oak Studios TV yarn.

It Took a Lot of Courage But......

Here is my version of Sursa that I knit 2 years ago. It has been hanging in my closet because I don't really care for it. I could not find the right yarn for the ruffles, and I settled, so it has never been worn.
So I ripped the entire thing out -- here is the ruffle. Noro Cash Ihora that I am selling BTW. It equals a little over 2 hanks -- 88g and it is doubled. $12 to include shipping to US.

And here is my Noro Silk Garden that will be knit into this.

I probabaly won't get to it until next year, but it felt good rewind the yarn and have a project already lined up!

Where Have I Been?

I have been under the weather with some arm and shoulder pain, occupational hazard and nothing serious, knitting just a few minutes a week. That hasn't stopped the mail though! Here is my from the Woolgirl. She packages everything so nicely (same shop that does my Seven Deadly S(p)ins

I just love the cube sock project bag!

And Miss Babs dyed the yarn perfectly to match it!

I am doing just a plain ol' sock for this this, and am happy with the way it is knitting up --size 1 Magic Loop BTW. Another vendor I am addicted to is Knitterly Things. Remember my Law and Order Rerun Socks? Well here is a Halloween version. I was incredibly lucky to get this puppy!

And just look at Indian corn from Sunshine Yarns! I have this OTN for Burning Rings of Fire.
